Betty J Byrom Sanford,
I am a child of the 50’s and know full well why we ask for reparation. While I have been recognized through my work which has brought national recognition to Michigan State University, I remain forever mindful of the educational deficits that left holes in my education that will never close. It’s agonizing to see that there are urban and rural students who have the same educational experiences that I had in K-12 during the 40’s and 50’s. This is one of the glaring reasons why the dream is yet to be realized. Thanks for allowing for this expression.
